Saturday, Sept 1: Women of the Church will meet at 10:00 at home of Linda D.

Summer Worship at IPC is always a bit “different”!  Be ready to choose your favorite hymn for our opening hymn medley.  Casual dress is welcome, as the sanctuary can get warm at times.  Special treats are always welcome (you can sign up on-line).  We hope you can join us!

Summer Sunday School – a group lesson  for our children is offered from 24 June through 26 August instead of the usual Sunday School classes.  If you would be willing to lead a group lesson one Sunday this summer, please contact Pr. Murray or Danielle T.

Summer at IPC means it’s time for summer music!  During the summer our wonderful IPC choir takes a well-earned break, but the music and worship goes on.  If you are interested in providing our special music for one Sunday this summer, please contact Sue.  We would love to hear your talent!

Any questions?
